Shockingly bad
5 November 2017 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

I don't believe I have ever seen a movie this poorly put together and acted. And the music! The music was weird and completely out of place. And the strangest of all...I wonder how Herzog ever got Lawrence Krauss, a world renown theoretical physicist to act in this bomb! It is simply beyond me. My respect for both have declined I'm afraid. Sorry to have wasted time on this... phew! what a stinker!
